Catalyst Game Labs has teamed with Wizards of the Coast for Dragonfire, a cooperative Dungeons and Dragons deck building game.  I want to play this now…

Based on the Shadowrun: Crossfire game engine, the game has been reworked to fit within the fantasy world of Dungeons and Dragons.

Adapting that engine to Dungeons & Dragons is an exciting opportunity to build new ways for players to experience both quick adventures and long-term campaigns in this legendary high-fantasy setting. And at every step, Catalyst has worked hard to remain true to D&D lore. When players open a copy at the table, regardless of what they enjoy playing—RPGs, deckbuilder games, or both—they’ll find a complete box of fun.

“Developing Dragonfire has been an amazing endeavor and a new high-mark for all of us at Catalyst,” said Randall N. Bills, Managing Developer of Catalyst Game Labs. “Like so many in our hobby, the first immersive game I played was D&D. To have the opportunity to add to that immense and amazing body of work…I’ve sat back several times in the midst of piles of D&D books and huge spreadsheets and just marveled at what we’re doing with such a storied game. If that’s not enough, the team at Wizards of the Coast has simply been fantastic to work with, helping ensure that we remain true to the world of D&D itself, but never at the cost of the overall game design.”

Seriously, I really want to play this game, right now. When will it come out?

We don’t have a specific release date at this time. The moment we do, we’ll update the website with that information.

Gah… is this a major problem for anyone else, or is it just me? The company says the game will have a MSRP of $59.99, but they can’t tell us when we can order it.
